I think most people remember without a prompt what happened September 11th, 2001. I have a few simple things to say.
What happened that day was a tragedy and an act of war.
1.A Let us always remember the courage displayed by the passengers and crew of FLIGHT 93, who put aside concerns for their own personal safety and stopped their plane from being used as the next deadly missile that would have taken thousands of lives.
1.B Remember the firefighters and medical personnel who went in at their own risk to get people out of there.
2. We were and are justified in fighting back.
3. We need to reclaim the personal freedoms that have been taken from us. The ones that were taken by a handful of people who saw this as an opportunity to move in on a weak time, using the tragedy for their own gain.
4. Let us use this day to think of all the people that we can who have given their lives for this country, for others, are self sacrificing, and have performed the simplest act of mercy.
5. Our current focus in the media is death...all the awful things that happen every day. But if we think for a moment, great things happen everywhere, too.
6. Think about how many people were late to work that day and were not killed. How many missed their flights.
Thanks to all who have done the good things of which I speak. Your courage is not forgotten or unnoticed.
P.S Oh yeah. Let us not even think about trying to blame God for this, when countless warnings from different sources were sent to us. When the death toll was a fraction of what it normally would have been at that time of day...
In spite of the fact that we constantly tell God to "Get out," He still sent warnings, prevented thousands of people from being at work at that day and time, and saved people that otherwise wouldn't have been found. How about Stairway B? Come on, now. Nobody would have found that without His intervention.
P.P.S. Remember Daisy the guide dog? She save 962 lives by running in three times.
